A bunch of great blogs have come together to bring you some amazing prizes to help you kick off your summer... with a SPLASH! Each blog is giving away at least $25 worth of prizes, plus we have an awesome grand prize for one very lucky winner. Be sure to hop along to each of the participating blogs because the more giveaways you enter, the more chances you have at winning the Grand Prize!

So what's this Grand Prize we're talking about? Thanks to Trex Outdoor Furniture, one very lucky winner is going to win a Yacht Club 3-Piece Rocker Set valued at $1,317! Made in the USA and constructed of durable HDPE recycled lumber, this Rocker Set is sure to help you slow down and relax this Summer and for many years to come!



Now on to my fun prize! 
I have to say that doing reviews and giveaways in the summer is my favorite...summer toys and outdoor things are the best! There are several companies that offer so many great outdoor toys, but Hearthsong is definitely my favorite! They have so many fun things to choose from, when I get the chance to work with them...I always have a hard time choosing what I want to review!

I love all their outdoor active toys, but I knew as soon I saw the LED Lighted 39" Metal Detector that was what I was going to choose!


Find buried treasure beneath the soil in your backyard, at the park or on the beach. Lightweight and specially sized for kids, this very sensitive metal detector includes a telescoping handle that flexes to reach even into and under odd spots. The professional LED display flashes red and green, and, thanks to the attached mini flashlight, you can continue your search in the dark. Sorry, gift wrap is not available.

For ages 5 and up.

• Lightweight and perfect for kids 
• LED display flashes red and green 
• Telescoping handle 
• Attached mini flashlight 

My Thoughts

Luke has been wanting a metal detector for a while now. I'm not sure where he got it from, but I think he may have seen it on a movie or a cartoon that he watched. He knew that you could use it to find coins and he was super excited when he found out that he would be getting one.

Before I knew that I was going to get to review this awesome metal detector, I had went back and forth with myself on whether or not to get him one made for a child or for an adult. On one hand I wanted to make sure it was going to actually work, but on the other hand I wanted it to be the right size so he could actually use it.

I'm so glad that I waited and was able to review this one because it offers everything in one!

The first thing that you would notice about this metal detector is that it is light weight. It's just the right weight to be carried around by a young child. Luke has had no problem with carrying it around. 



The height on this is adjustable so that it grows with your child. You can adjust it so that it is just the right height to fit your childs needs. I especially liked this feature as it made it easy to make this fit just right for Luke and I don't have to worry about him outgrowing it. He will be able to use this for a long time.

The LED light fixture is a great addition. It's nice to be able to flip the light on if there was something we needed to see, and is much more convenient than carrying around a flash light..which I probably would never have thought about doing if it didn't come with one already and I realized how nice it was to have one. I do, however, wish that the light was a bit brighter, but I'm sure this saves on the battery life!



The metal detector is so easy to use too! All you have to do is switch it on and your ready to go. We tried it out in the house first, and I will admit I was skeptical if it would actually work since it was made for kids. But, I was proven wrong because it works wonderfully. The first thing we held it up to was the vent, and the tone went off right away. 

The next step was to take it outside! We used it around our yard and it worked great! We did find a coin in the backyard, however it wasn't anything old but Luke was more than thrilled to find a "special coin" I'm really excited to take this other places than our own backyard and see what he can find with it. The fact that it is so light weight makes it easy to just throw in the car and go! I love that this will give us something to do this summer, and I'm having fun with Luke looking for little treasures! And we are even getting a little more exercise too!

I'm very glad that we decided to get this metal detector from Hearthsong..like always they don't disappoint! This metal detector is priced at $29.98 which makes it a great choice for a gift! If you have a child in your life that has everything...this would make an awesome choice!
